Final Deathly Hallows Debates: Who Lives and Who Dies?

We know for sure that some characters are going to die in Deathly Hallows. Last year in an interview, J.K. Rowling said that two characters die who she had not originally thought would die in the end of the story. That means at least two characters die, but probably more. And that's probably not counting Harry and/or Voldemort. So who lives and who dies? Tell us who you think will die, and more importantly, why you think so.

I think that Hagrid . He just has too. I mean all the adults Harry are closer and that is just what happen with Hagrid. I think that Harry as well, because he is not sed anough to Voldemort and still survive even if he destroyed all the Horcruxes. Voldemort have to becuase that has to be the main poin of the the book.

I think that Snape probably be one of the people to because he has saved Harry's life plenty of times and he trying to protect Harry from Voldemort. I also think that Voldemort being ed by either Harry or Neville, since Neville is also possibly the "Chosen One". So since I think Voldemort , Harry live because the prophecy states that "neither can live while the other survives". I really want the trio plus Ginny to survive like everyone else! Especially since Harry and Ginny got together and Ron and Hermoine just have to be together eventually! Although, I also think it's possible that Ginny . She is a powerful witch as was shown in the 5th book and she may get ed saving Harry.

You need to reread the Horcrux chapter in HBP. Dumbledore says to Harry that Voldemort would need a significant to make a horcrux. That would have been Harry's as a infant. He would have to Harry first then make the horcrux not make it while he was trying to Harry. The act of ing would have to come first. Voldemort probably intended to make a horcrux, but since the AV backfired, he did not have the opportunity to work the horcrux spell.

The AV curse probably takes a tremendous amount of hate to work. When Snape used it to Dumbledore, JKR wrote that "Snape Dumbledore, and there was revulsion and hatred etched in...his face." Snape had to work up this hatred to effect the curse. It would seem that it would take a large effort and a bit of yourself to work it. When Voldemort tried the AV curse on the baby Harry, that bit of himself was what transferred to Harry giving him the scar and some of Voldemort's abilities.

Ok, this goes for everyone else that STILL hasn't caught up. No one is saying Voldemort made Harry or his scar intentionally. So stop saying "Why would he try to his horcrux." No one here is dumb enough to think Voldemort would try and harm a Horcrux. We're saying if he made HP or his scar *unintentionally* into a Horcrux. Not on purpose. You know, due to what happened when he tried to Harry as a child. Also, he's damaged his soul so much, he can't tell that part is missing. No one is saying he knows anything.

I think Wormtail by saving Lupin.

Wormtail isn't evil, just a coward.

No matter in what story, genre, plot line, form, or whatever, I've noticed that the people that I like best end up . Mercutio from Romeo and Juliet (play), Fili & Kili from the Hobbit (book), Maes Hughes from Fullmetal Alchemist (anime/manga), Nei from Phantasy Star II (video game), and Sirius Black (let's hope you all know what he's from...) That makes me worried about the following character's survival:

Remus, Severus (almost positive that he ), Hagrid, Arthur, George, Fred, Minerva - I had to list my's pretend I only have a top 20, order to make this one, 'cause half of them are already .

My boyfriend says: "Severus is going to survive just to spite Harry. The 'neither can live while the other survives' means that Harry's going to become un; there'll be alot more "Accio braaains" action goin' on." (He insisted I put that up.)

JK wouldnt break the trio they either all , or all live, Im leaning towards all live, because wreck the series if its not pulled off correctly, but i believe that Rowling be brave and the whole trio.

Posted by Tarz from Sydney, Australia on July 14, 2007 9:31 PM

i dunno... i never even thought of hargrid being the one to . but now that i think of it, maybe it would make sense.

i remember the first time i heard some major character was going to - i imetly thought neville. he would've been the one the prophecy belonged to, if not harry. he has been developed into a main character. why not him?

Harry does not : He takes the place of Dumbledore as the next 'micheal jordan' of the wizarding world.
Furthermore I think in this book you really see harry take a power spike. He is going to start wielding VERY potent magic. The simple-yet-effective spells still be the backbone of his arsenal, but he start getting to a power level of Voldemort strength by the climax of the book.
I think as stated earlier that harry was a horcrux until voldemort used his blood to regain his body.

I am a believer of the foreshadowed of the Weasly twins.
I maybe wouldnt be suprised if a goodly number of the weasly clan was whiped off the map.
In fact I would venture to say that we shouldnt be guessing who lives, but instead wonder who live.
this book be a war. Wars have casualties.
In order for harry to get his portrait on a chocolate frog card, many in the Order of the phoenix, and Dumbledores Army perish.
In the end tho I think Ginny, Ron, Hermione, Harry, Luna Lovegood live.
Also look for a interesting 'two pronged climactic finally'
where a strike team of dumbledore's army fight Nagini to the while harry brawls with voldemort.

Its interesting to note that everyday my opinion changes
wich is the real wonder about these books - how they really sharpen your brain, and make you think.
Jo looked downright great in the recent interviews, cant wait to get the book in my hands!

Voldemort's mistakes are very limited. After sirius d he's got to be my favorite character. I personally find it very hard to believe he accidently sometimes just makes horcruxes out of people. Especially Harry Potter.

Guys. I think I've been wrong about the profecy all the time. I believe the part about "neither can live while the other survives" means they both need to . You see, if Voldemort or Harry lives both of them . The only problem here is that the statement "Neither can live while the other survives" (if interpreted this way) is a "contradictio interminis". (for example: a dumb genius)
